Fearing the law, they choose to do nothing until Jake Shell (Hauer) a charming yet terrifying stranger, shows up at their home persistently asking for work. After each rejection, he threateningly returns until the intimidated couple trick him into meeting at their attorney's office. It is there that Shell admits he's “on the run” and insinuates what he might have seen in Mexico, “it's amazing what you can learn just sitting by the side of the road.”

Be forewarned of a perfectly-paced scene in which, driving through a car wash hearing only the rhythmic equipment, the windshield wipers suddenly dislodge a bloody eyebrow.

The torment continues as Shell beats their receptionist in a bondage scene, Lynn loses her baby, and Doug and Shell face off in a mismatched fist fight. Eventually, Doug must search Shell's trailer to find the one piece of physical evidence that will prove the couple's innocence.
